Family Ministry

Here at FUMC-Rocky Mount, Family Ministry hangs everything on three words:  Know. Grow. Go.

We believe that there's a seat at the table for everyone! It's important to us, as we gather to pray and play together, as well as go and serve together, that everyone should KNOW that they belong. We aim to get to KNOW each other better as we dive into God’s Word to KNOW His heart better.

Our mission is that we help people become devoted disciples of Jesus Christ and challenge them to GROW in their relationship with Him. We do this through age-specific small groups that meet on Sundays. Our Small Group Leaders are committed to helping our students GROW in their relationship with Jesus by coming alongside them in their small groups and by showing up in their lives outside of the church walls. Family Ministry also partners with parents to better equip them to influence their children’s faith journeys at home, too. By helping parents GROW in their ability to lead at home, we’re ultimately having the best impact on the next generation.

The challenge of Jesus’ words in Matthew 28 to GO make disciples is the reason we find ways to leave the comfort of our church walls to GO serve. Whether that’s locally within Children’s Ministry or abroad within Youth Ministry.
Sometimes that looks like crawling on the van to go serve at our local schools or hang out with Senior Adults.
Sometimes, it’s participating in Gatekeepers within our city limits, and sometimes it means hopping on a plane for an overseas trip.

Our hope is that your family will be in community with us and our larger church family here at FUMC-Rocky Mount.
